Fodor's Review

The sandy colored Solmar sits against the rocks at Land's End facing the surging Pacific. The all-suite accommodations are simple but clean, and are done in a Mexico–Santa Fe style. The oldest rooms have ocean views, and you literally feel the waves breaking on the nearby beach. Time-share units (also used as hotel rooms) have kitchenettes and a private pool area. The all-inclusive plan gives access to one restaurant and two bars, meaning food choices are limited. The

surf here is far too dangerous for swimming, but don't miss a stroll along the wide strip of beach. The Solmar's sportfishing service is a longtime local favorite, and a small spa adds to the attraction.

If you love time-share presentations, you'll love Cabo and Solmar Suites!

Right after we checked in with Reception, we were ushered off to meet Tracy, who gave us a quick overview of the hotel and Cabo followed by an invitation to owners receptions to hear about an exciting new property he has. You had to ask her a few times if this was a "timeshare" pitch before she reluctantly said, yes. Not happy that we were missing the deal of a lifetime, the hotel keep the soft sell up for the next few days (every time we passed thru

the lobby Tracy would ask us what time we could be booked for our presentation). After awhile (like 5 days) they get the message, but we never felt she was impartial enough to book any activities thur or get any advice from. We booked the "Deluxe Suite", while our room did have a great view of the Pacific ocean from it's balcony, the pictures from the hotel's web site are a little miss-leading as the room was not on the beach, but set back behind a few other buildings with the front door the room facing the service road into the hotel. The decor of the room had not been updated since the place was built (over 10 years ago). The beds were hard as a rock and very un-comfortable ( my wife and I did not get one good nights sleep during our stay). Cabo is not cheap, you'll pay the same here for drinks and food as you will in Hawaii. And if you want a car during your trip, book in advance from home, the cheapest car we could find was $56 a day for a two seater. One other note, the owner "reverses" the hotels tennis court for his family every day from 4-6, kind of primetime were hotel guest are shut-out. Seem like you may want to look around at other hotels if you plan a vaction to Cabo.

It was bearable

But that's about it. The place is actually quite nice and it is very close to the fishing boats and town, but the service was consistently poor. The bar menu is far more satisfying than the contrived restaurant menu. The beach is pretty, but the surf is too dangerous to really enjoy. All of this would be acceptable if the service were even decent. Also, all guests are subjected to an "welcome" which is really just a hard-sell attempt to get you to

buy additional activities and such through them. It makes you dread the front door when you know you'll have to pass one of these saleswomen. But hey, it could be worse!

Great location for fishing

If you are going to Cabo to fish this hotel is walking distance to the marina and the Solmar fleet has a rep in the lobby to set up your boat for you. The walk to town isn't bad. Nice pool area. The beach is gorgeous but steeply sloped and way too rough for anything more than a stroll.

Great family hotel

We stayed for a week with our two daughters and found it terrific. Fishing fleet was great, beaches are beautiful even if not good for swimming, staff was pretty good, room was clean. Only complaint was the lumpy sofa sleeper. We'll be back...
